The You’ve Never Heard of that’s Behind all your High-Performance Outdoor Gear
Around 10 million Koreans – one out of five – say they enjoy mountain climbing. It’s really no wonder, considering the fact that 70 percent of the Korean peninsula is covered in mountainous terrain.
All of these hikers create a huge demand for specialty clothes for hiking – because let’s be honest, looking good while hiking is half the fun. Korea’s slopes are filled with well coiffed men and women in outdoor brands like North Face, K2 and even fashion brands like Armani and MaxMara.
These companies may be famous for their designs, but their winter jackets couldn’t exist if it weren’t for a Korean company you’ve probably never heard of and might not be able to pronounce: ST ONECHANG.
For about 40 years, this company has made high performance fabrics that are essential in outdoor gear. They’ve mastered the art of creating fabrics that are thin and light but, at the same time, durable.
Take one of ST ONECHANG’s top selling fabrics for example, AIRZENIN Downfans. This is used in ultralight down jackets that need to be warm but also comfortable and strong enough for people exploring mountains, forests and deserts.
These types of jackets are especially useful in desert environments because they can be easily packed away when temperatures soar during the day but pulled out when it dips below freezing at night. AIRZENIN Downfans material is also used for sleeping bags and windbreakers.
Another of the company’s star products is AQUAZEN, a waterproof and windproof fabric used in rainwear and snowboard wear. It has special layers made of microscopic pores that are only one-ten-thousandth the size of a drop of water.
